Surprisingly powerful and filament is strong!
I have used everything from a "pro" grade trimmer to electric over the years. As my yards got larger as I moved, I upgraded as needed. I recently started switching over many of my tools to Milwaukee M12 and M18 lines. Some of these tools have been amazing others still need some fine tuning from Milwaukee. This particular tool, the String Trimmer is one of the amazing ones. Firstly, the string Milwaukee has for this unit is much better designed than the standard plastic filament. It lasts much longer than standard string and that coupled with what seems to be a simpler way to load the string when its out is a huge improvement over many of the previous trimmers I have used. The battery is probably the most important thing to consider with this trimmer. The overall design gives great flexibility for easy "refueling" and an ability to navigate further into a yard away from the house where the power cord is attached or farther from your shed where the gas is located. The key here is to have a mid-size amp hour battery or larger in the unit and another in your pocket just in case. Overall I love this trimmer. I am not easy on my tools and I wouldn't give Milwaukee a review on a tool unless I really liked it. So far I have used the trimmer many times over 60 days +/- I have owned it.

Best string trimmer I have ever owned.
We have about 1.5 acres of lawn to maintain. I've tried a few different gas trimmers over the years that after 1 season become problematic. Too heavy and difficult for my wife to use and start. Mixing fuel, bump and go trimmer advance works only occasionally, seem to spend 1/2 our trimming time keeping the gas units running and operating properly. I own other Milwaukee tools and I find them the best. I wish I had purchased the Milwaukee string trimmer 3 years ago. Excellent product.

My M18 FUEL™ String Trimmer is great!
I have had it for about a month now and love using it. I have only about an acre of land, but I have a lot of bushes, shrubs and fence that I need to trim around. I can do all this on less than 1 charge. I can even edge the sidewalks and flower beds..

Trim your grass without waking your neighbours!
I replaced my gas string trimmer with this and couldn’t be happier! I don’t have to mix gas and oil anymore. Just put a battery on it and go. It cuts thick brush and reaches max speed instantly. Has 2 different speed settings. Great product! Highly recommended!

Excellent tool, great system!
I use this for home and office exterior maintenance. The string re-load system is the easiest I've ever used. I also use the pole saw and edger attachments. The quick-lock system for changing out tools is quick and easy. Th 9.0 battery that I have lasts for the entire job with the string trimmer and pole saw. The edger attachment seems to use up the battery faster, but this whole system is terrific.

Works perfect for my lawn. One 9.0 amp hour last two times for my lawn between chargings, about one hour runtime.

Where can I get the operating manual..Misplaced mine? Milwaukee string trimmer 2725-20

do I need to buy a string pack or just rewind more string?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's best to buy the string pack. Spoiling the string on yourself can be a pain in the neck. It can be done if you have some patience. However, if you want to save yourself the hassle, just buy it already strung. Hope this helps.

BEST ANSWER: Milwaukee does not recommend this model to be used in the rain.
Will other m18 batteries work?
A shopper on May 22, 2018
